I am Samarendra Hedaoo, your Instructor for CS464 this quarter. Before I became an Instructor at the School of EECS, I worked at the Open Source Lab where we interacted with various Free and Open Source software groups daily about their infrastructure hosted at Oregon State. I also ran a small startup in 2015 in which we open sourced all the code we wrote. While I was in college we also made available the source for all the software we developed. My first job involved developing and maintaining a microfinance banking solution which was under an Open Source license.
Apart from all these Open Source-y things, I love cooking and reading.
I hope we have a great term together!
